The annual Vital Signs report, chock-full of neighborhood-level Baltimore data, is out — with takeaways and visualizations on the stats that comprise the city.

And this year, the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance-Jacob France Institute is opening up the data on a new platform.

Through Esri, BNIA is making the indicators in the report available for thorough consumption. BNIA Associate Director Seema Iyer said the University of Baltimore-based center wants to make the data more accessible.

Where the city’s Open Baltimore platform offers datasets with individual occurrences, Iyer said the Vital Signs open data shows how those individual data points “aggregate up to the neighborhood level.”

“It’s more of an analysis of existing datasets,” Iyer said. The open data also includes past editions of Vital Signs.

Iyer also pointed to more data visualization on the BNIA website, where a map allows users to click on an area and get taken to neighborhood data.

Vital Signs itself also contains a new look at changing demographics with the release of the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. That info allowed BNIA to compare changes in categories like race, age and income level from 2011-2015, Iyer said.
